    1. I would like to share with you a book that has left a profound impression on me. Yes, its pure fiction and one may think.oh it’s only a story made up in a writer’s imagination. Yes, it is that….but it will be a story that will inspire you…make you believe that Love is Timeless regardless….It’s a book I want to share with my friends…a story that is heartbreaking but uplifting too. A love story that transcends time. Yes, you might also think that you have read similar stories…but L [...]

    2. No sé qué decir. En mí hay un vacío que no sé cómo llenar. No se trata de ningún pozo oscuro ni de un agujero insondable. Más bien se trata de una sensación de tristeza; de una leve pauta, en medio de la realidad. La historia que narra Iona Grey es dura, triste, como solo puede serlo la guerra y la carencia de amor y respeto; el irremediable final. Sin embargo, también hay una nota de color en medio de tanta negrura, una nota de voces jóvenes, con sus conflictos y traumas, que aportan [...]

    3. A very clever novel which time-slips between two romances in modern and WW2 era London. When Jess finds a box of old letters while hiding in an abandoned house to escape her abusive boyfriend , we are transported back in time to the heartrending love story of Stella and Dan a U.S. Bomber pilot flying missions over Europe. I usually think stories told through letters are tedious, but this book finds just the right mix. I'm not surprised that several of my Bookclub's have chosen this as their mont [...]

    4. Son 4,5. Me ha encantado. Aunque diría que hay un hilo en la trama que me ha hecho pensar que esta historia "ya la he leído" con otros matices (por eso no son las 5 estrellas completas). Pero hablaré de lo bueno: cuatro protagonistas sin traumas, buenos. Tienen un pasado, sí, pero creíble y llevadero. El problema es que Stella y Dan se conocen en un mal momento. Creo que por eso me han gustado tanto, porque son personas normales, que coinciden y se enamoraron durante una guerra. Will y Jess [...]

    5. Every so often, a book comes along that is so thoroughly perfect that you feel like you're going to burst if you can't tell everyone about it. Otherwise they might never read it - and that would be so dreadful. Letters To The Lost by Iona Grey is published by Simon & Schuster on 23 April in paperback and for kindle: it's a substantial read, 560 wonderful pages, but it could have been twice as long as I never wanted it to finish. We all read for different reasons, but one of the things I love [...]

    6. Pues sí, se merece 5 estrellas porque a pesar de que iba con mucho miedo al leer este libro ya que el estilo de narración no suele ser mi preferido, ha conseguido engancharme completamente.Me ha parecido preciosa la historia de Dan y Stella, con sus momentos agridulces pero que merece la pena totalmente.La historia del presente me ha gustado menos, me ha parecido un poco más precipitada y rebuscada, pero bueno merece la pena por la relación de amistad entre Jess y Dan y lo que hacen por és [...]

    7. reseña completa: masromance/2014 para la novela y 3 para el contenido (ains una historia muy bonita pero .)Un ejemplo de novela bien escrita, bien estructurada, que engancha pero cuyo contenido, a mí, no me gusta leer.¿Es una historia bonita? Sí !!! ¿toca puntos sensibles? Claro!!!Pero el drama la envuelve desde el minuto uno y sabes que no hay solución y estás todo el rato esperando cuando la autora decidirá destrozarte esa bonita historia de amor. A mí no me compensa.Y que conste que [...]

    8. .An incredibly intense, compelling and deeply moving tale, I love it when books are like this . so unexpected, and in this case, less is definitely more. So, so much more, and it will take me a while to recover from it. What an experience, and exactly why I love reading as much as I do.Highly recommended, and I'll be anxiously looking out for more books from this author.

    9. My interest peaked somewhere in the middle and I had a hard time finishing this book. It was a little too Nicholas Sparks for me, not sure how I ended up with this on my reading list I should probably put a note about that when I add a book. I know it was a different time, but Stella was hard to take. She was such a mousy person who could have spoken up once, at several different points during the story, and everything would have been fine. Right down to the central split in the book. She create [...]

    10. Reseña -> thewordsofbooks.e«Las cosas que dejamos atrás son las cosas que importan, como rocas expuestas por la marea menguante. Así que ha escrito la carta, y ahora aguarda impaciente a que esta emprenda su viaje. Hacia el pasado.»Solo os diré que ha sido una lectura preciosa y que ahora mismo tengo el corazon en un puño tras terminarlo. Es de esos libros que te conquistan poco a poco.

    11. Set in London in the present day and in the early 1940s. Jess is a young woman on the run, desperate and alone. When she stumbles on an abandoned home, she sees it as an opportunity for refuge and a chance to give thought to her future. When she discovers a packet of letters hidden in a drawer, she is drawn into the love story of Stella and a young American airman, Dan. When a letter arrives at the house from Dan making one last appeal to reconnect with Stella, Jess is determined to find her. Al [...]

    12. Bježeći od nasilnog momka jedne hladne zimske večeri, Jess pronalazi utočište u napuštenoj kući u Londonu. Idućeg dana ona u njoj otkriva kutiju prepunu pisama koja su pisana tijekom II Svjetskog rata. Počinje ih čitati i tada kreće paralelna priča iz rata, priča o nesretnoj ljubavi između mlade Engleskinje Stelle i američkog vojnog pilota Dana. Javlja joj se ideja o spajanju Stelle i Dana nakon svih tih godina, iako bi oni sada imali preko 80 godina. "Ako je ovo sve Ako su ova tr [...]

    13. It isn't my usual sort of book, being historical fiction that's really light on the history side. Just a warm story with romance at it's centre; I surprised myself by enjoying it. Yes, I can see why people read these all the time.

    14. Me lo he leído en dos días, y me lo hubiese leído en uno de haber tenido tiempo. Una historia que me ha encantado, sobre todo la pareja del pasado, las cartas

    15. I savored this book!I loved the dual story line going from England in the 1940s to 2011. The characters and setting are so vivid to me. It was so easy to get drawn into the story of Stella & Dan during WWII, and I felt so bad that she was trapped in a loveless marriage to the Vicar, Charles. All the 5 star ratings and reviews you see here are well deserved!I highly recommend this book if you like historical fiction. It will be at the top of my favorites for 2016.

    16. This truly is one of the most gorgeous, romantic and moving books you're likely to read in 2015. Evocative and beautifully written, Grey manages to take your heart out of your chest and squeeze it almost dry leaving just enough breath in your body to be blown away. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    17. 2.5 starsFirst, it was the dual timeline, which annoys me to no end. I cannot invest in two love stories in the same time, happening two ages apart. I just cannot. I loved the WWII couple and rooted for them, I couldn't possibly care less for the present one. Secondly, somewhere around 50%, it started to drag, and I started to skim - I blame the second couple again.Thirdly, it got a tad melodramatic towards the end. Melodramatic and predictable, that is.The writing was good, and the historical d [...]

    18. A beautifully woven tale of love and loss that breaks your heart and rebuilds it. I couldn't put it down. It was big juicy read that reminded me of books that I loved in the past that wrapped you up, held you tight and didn't put you down until you were left devastated that the book had ended yet totally satisfied.

    19. Izuzetna uzbudljiva priča, dirljiva, emotivna Podsjeća na Sparksovu Bilježnicu, ali je tema slojevitija, bolje razrađena, obje priče, kako ona iz sadašnjosti, tako i ona centralna iz prošlosti, podjednako su vješto ispričane. Za prvi roman autorice izvrsno, nadam se da će ih biti još Preporuka za sve koji vole dobre romantične, ali ne i sladunjave, životne drame!

    20. 2011 and a letter is written from Maine. It is a letter of desperation and love from an old man to the woman he promised to ’love forever.’ He sends the letter to the last known address he has for her. But the letter is not found by his old love but a young woman who holes up in the abandoned house. Jess is on the run from an abusive boyfriend. Homeless and without much money, the abandoned house is a source of refuge for her. Jess cannot help herself. She reads the letter and wishes she cou [...]

    21. Me ha encantado. Adoro las historias ambientadas en la segunda guerra mundial y aun más si alternan entre una historia del pasado y del presente. Es una historia de amor preciosa de las que perduran en el tiempo y sin ser nada empalagosa. La narración me ha gustado mucho y la autora sabe como mantener el interés intercalando cartas del protagonista americano y de su trabajo como aviador en la guerra.

    22. 2.5 starsWith 4.25 average from 5,049 ratings, I’m obviously in a minority.The blurb as well as numerous reviewers did an excellent job in describing the plot, so I'm just going to write my opinion about the story.I admit, I struggled with how to rate the book. Beginning and up to probably 40% was a solid 4-stars with competent writing and intriguing plot that kept me glued to the pages. But this didn’t hold up.I don’t generally like dual time line stories because I don't think many author [...]

    23. Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey is the most magnificent and heart-wrenching love story I have EVER read!!! There’s no doubt that this novel will be added to my top 10 list of 2017.It is impossible to not cry your heart out on completion of this book. Letters to the Lost is a truly captivating story. It blew me away from the first page and along the way it tore out my heart. Stella and Dan’s story is an unforgettable tale of a love so profound and powerful that it spreads over a lifetime reg [...]

    24. This lovely story summarises everything I love about historical fiction. There is something quite mesmerising about romance during the war; that amongst the violence, the death and the poverty that love can still find a way to flourish.Transcending two generations, the reader is introduced to Jess, an aspiring singer fleeing from her violent and controlling boyfriend. With nowhere else to go, she finds refuge in an abandoned house and discovers a box of love letters. With the help of heir hunter [...]

    25. 20/20On lit rarement une histoire d’amour si belle, si absolue. Ce roman historique m’a passionnée, captivée et tant émue. Mon coeur a battu si fort au rythme de ces lettres, de ces moments entre Dan & Stella, de ce temps qui passe. C’est l’histoire d’un amour si fort mais d’un amour victime du temps et d’une époque. Magnifique et bouleversant. Un énorme coup de coeur.Ma chronique : myprettybooks.wordpress/2

    26. 4.5 StarsStep back into 1943, into a world during World War 2. Set against the backdrop of London, Letter’s to the Lost is a love story that transcends time, that is both beautiful and heartbreaking.He was an American bomber pilot, whose chance of survival was only one in five. She was newly married. They met by chance, and didn’t mean to fall in love, especially with everything stacked against them.This story was lovely, so beautiful, emotional and quiet a bit heart breaking.We follow two t [...]

    27. Letters to the Lost is a book that can be described in terms that are often overused and often felt to be clichéd, please forgive me when I tell you that this novel really is a book that you will struggle to put down, a book that is a complete and utter pager-turner and a book that the reader will lose themselves in completely. It is a story that spans sixty years, and is over 500 pages long, but the pages fly by so quickly as the story captivates the reader, you will become totally engrossed.L [...]

    28. En realidad son 4,5. Es una historia preciosa, lo único que falla es la historia del presente, que, en comparación a la del pasado, es mucho más floja, aún así también me ha gustado.Muy recomendable.

    29. I can honestly say I've loved this book! This is a powerful love story and one that I think will stay with me. I found myself thinking about Stella and Dan (and Jess and Will) when I wasn't reading, wondering what might happen to them next. I found myself eager to get home and read another chapter or two. I could almost feel Stella's and Dan's pain when they were unable to be together and I was desperate for them to have a happy ending. Obviously I don't condone adultery, but you can't help who [...]

    30. A story that spans years, from WW2 to present day. Stella and Dan's love story is not as easy one by far, but it is one which will keep you gripped to the end page. BY contrast Jess and Will have an easier time, joined by the letters from Dan and their desire to help reunite him with the love of his life. But no one knows of Stella and if she is even alive. I'm not one for a sloppy love story and this is defiantly not that, but at the same time this is a love story that is more realistic than an [...]
